Each house has verandahs, covered decks, a paved patio area with outdoor seating, barbeque, securely fenced lawns and a trampoline area.  Again, (probably because it’s a homestead), Maya outdoes the other cottages by also having a cubby house for the “little tackas”, (or kids for those of you not used to Australian slang).

8. Caves Road Chalets

A quiet place to hide from city life, or just get away from the same old routine day in, day out, are the Caves Road Chalets.  Surrounded by bushland, with plenty of entertainment on-site or just up the road, none of you will ever be bored!

There is a playground for the kids and 64 acres on which Doggo can roam free.  Maybe you could tick some tasks off the Dog’s Bucket List?  

While the kids and pup are exploring outside, the adults can relax in front of a wood-burning fire with a glass of wine bought from one of Margaret River’s Dog Friendly Wineries.  If it’s winter.  It really wouldn’t be relaxing sitting in front of a fire in the middle of an Australian Summer.  But good news!  Each chalet has air-conditioning! Whackadoo!

Each chalet is filled with everything you could want for a relaxing holiday.  A fully functioning kitchen, bedding and towels, you name it.  And if you have a baby, high chairs, baby baths and cots are available too, so you don’t need to pack them!

Dogs, while welcome in the chalet, are not welcome on couches, beds, in the bedrooms, or up on the second story of the chalets.  Also, some breeds of dogs they cannot accommodate for, so please inform them when you book.

If you’re going out and can’t take the dog, Caves Road Chalets have enclosed runs, so your dogs will be safe and secure running around their own maze while you’re checking out the local attractions that aren’t so attracted to dogs.

If you want to take your furry child with you, there are plenty of Dog Friendly Restaurants in Margaret River to go to.

9. Stay Margaret River 

If you’re looking for a dog-friendly stay in Margaret River, especially one that caters for large groups, then we’ve got you covered.  

Stay Margaret River is the perfect place for those that want to book accommodation for everyone and their dog.  In fact, Stay Margaret River is the only venue in town, that can not only host but also cater for you and your group. 

A convention centre is also on the grounds which means, they are perfect for wedding accommodation, as well as work functions.

There are a variety of accommodation options, but for those of you who will be bringing Fluffykins along, you must stay in a King Room or a Two-Bedroom Apartment.  There is also a charge for your pampered pooch of $75 per night for Bed and Bowls.  (I think it’s a dog version of Bed and Breakfast?)

Whatever room you choose to stay in, some features are common to all.  Namely:

  • Reverse cycle air conditioning so you can defrost any cold shoulders or warm hearts.
  • Free Wifi for googling dog-friendly places to visit in Margaret River (Have you seen our list of dog-friendly wineries in Margaret River?)
  • HD TV with an in-built DVD player.
  • DVD library (ask at the front counter).
  • Everything you need to make a cup of tea or “Wakey-Uppy Juice” (which is what Kitty Flannagin likes to call Coffee).
  • Iron and Ironing board for those who need to prep for a meeting or a wedding, or those who are just snappy dressers (Good on you).
  • A hair dryer, because leaving your hair wet in winter will freeze your brain.
  • There is a centre for self-service catering if you so wish, or you can pop along to Willow Grill Restaurant if you leave poochy behind.
  • For the humans in the group, you’ll have access to a 9-hole mini-golf course, so you can practice for the World Minigolf Championships.
  • If minigolf isn’t your cuppa tea, there’s a giant chess game, Bocce, as well as a playground and swing set for your kids.
  • Finally, there are barbeques if your dog would like to tick something off his Bucket List for Dogs.

Either way, this place is fantastic dog-friendly accommodation Margaret River.

Holiday Houses

10. Beachhouse Holidays 

Beachhouse Holidays has a large variety of accommodation on offer, however, only four are pet-friendly accommodation near Margaret River.  The addresses of the individual houses will be provided at booking. 

If you want dog-friendly accommodation near Margaret River, you have a choice of Fragrant Harbour, Gnarabup Views, but please don’t mistake this with Gnarabup on Baudin, because Gnarabup on Baudin is NOT pet friendly.  Higgins Hideaway and Le Souef are the other houses that are pet friendly on offer.

Being pet-friendly does not mean that each individual house doesn’t have rules regarding Rover.  Each house has its own rules, so you’ll need to check what the rules are for the accommodation you pick.

Fragrant Harbour, near Margaret River, is dog-friendly accommodation fit for a king!  This multi-level, modern home is stately positioned on a hill and has glorious 180-degree views of the Indian Ocean.

This stylish home features four bedrooms, three with their own ensuites (and one ensuite has a spa!).  Two ensuite bedrooms have king-sized beds, (one king bed can convert to two singles), the third bedroom contains a queen-sized bed, and the fourth bedroom has a king bed which, like bedroom one, has the option of converting to two singles. 

The kitchen, Oh My!  I LOVE the kitchen!!  I love cooking, and in this state-of-the-art kitchen, designed very specifically for entertaining, you’ll have everything you need to whip up gourmet meals while looking out at the panoramic views.  I’m sure even Jamie Oliver would approve! 

You also have your choice of dining area, one inside, two outside.  The first outside dining area overlooks the property’s private pool, while the second is up the spiral staircase, (made with wood from Marri Trees), on the upper terrace.

As for the living areas, the main lounge room comes complete with a wood fire, smart TV (with Netflix and free wifi), and ceiling fans.  The other lounge is upstairs, and contains an antique daybed, Chinese in nature, and a telescope so you can gaze at the planets and stars.

Outside, there is:

  • A gas barbeque for outdoor cooking,
  • An outdoor shower, so you can rinse off any stubborn sand from your gambol along the beach with your furry friend,  
  • A trampoline, for the entertainment of the kidlets,
  • A lawn for Lucky,
  • A hammock, yet another place for relaxation.
  • A superb swimming pool complete with pool toys and a Balinese bale, and finally, 
  • Magnificently manicured gardens.

Gnarabup Views is a cozy, three-bedroom cottage on the hillside just off Gnarabup Beach, complete with its own veggie garden and secluded backyard.  You are allowed to use the veggies for your meals.

Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed, for which the necessary linens are provided.  Two rooms are on the main level and can open onto the outside deck, while the third is upstairs.  The master bedroom also has an ensuite and a walk-in robe.  A second bathroom is also on the main floor.

For your comfort, reverse cycle air conditioning is in the kitchen, dining and lounge areas.  The kitchen has all the necessary items for cooking, and is open plan with the dining area, while the lounge room features a smart TV and DVD player, and free wifi.  The lounge also opens up to a deck, where one can have a barbeque while watching the waves.

Finally, Gnarabup Views features a “secret” room, (accessible from outside, below the house), that can be both relaxing or rowdy, depending on your mood: the ‘music room’.

The music room contains a mini-library of books and CDs, and a comfy couch on which to unwind and listen, recovering from the demands of the daily grind.  Alternatively, it could be used for band practice, as it contains a guitar, a piano, flutes, and yet another TV and DVD player.

Rustic and chic, this dog-friendly accommodation near Margaret River has it all.  Higgins Hideaway is a quaint cottage hidden beside a native forest, and surrounded by a peaceful garden.

This cottage comfortably sleeps six, in three bedrooms.  Two rooms with queen-sized beds share an adjoining bathroom, while the third bedroom has a double bed and looks out into the gardens.  The second bathroom includes a bath and a shower and also contains laundry facilities.

In the mornings, you might like to have breakfast on the front verandah, sipping your morning “jitter juice” made in the Espressotoria coffee machine, while reading the morning paper.  Or you might like to take in the sights and sounds of the birds.  I can’t think of more beautiful music to wake up to than the twittering and chirping of little birds.

The kitchen is fully kitted out with the necessary equipment needed to make anything you want; a cup of tea to a roast meal with all the fixings.  Alternatively, there’s a barbeque area outside in the back garden.  Just off the kitchen is a daybed, perfect for relaxing while planning the meals of the day.

The dining room is open plan with the lounge room and features a high deco ceiling and reverse cycle air conditioning for comfort all year round.  And when the evenings are just too wonderful to stay cooped up inside, there is an outdoor dining suite on the deck in the backyard, unless you prefer to use the outdoor lounges on which to eat more casually.

For your dear Doggo’s safety, the backyard is securely fenced.

If it rains, or you’d rather spend the day indoors, or worse you have to work while you’re supposed to be on holiday, free wifi is provided along with a smart TV.

You couldn’t ask for more with this sweet cottage. 

Le Souef is a very spacious, mudbrick home, featuring recycled timber, a recycled stone floor, and recycled Kiln bricks, giving this amazing retreat a rustic yet peaceful ambiance.

Le Souef is a split-level home, three of the bedrooms and a lounge room are upstairs, while the open plan kitchen and dining areas and another lounge room are on the lower level.

There are four large bedrooms, one king, and two queens, and the fourth room is a bunk that sleeps a double on the bottom and a single on the top.  All the bedding you need is provided, (even electric blankets for those cold winter nights!), so there’s more room in the car to bring board games like Cluedo or Monopoly.

The kitchen is fully contained with modern amenities, gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher (how convenient!), pots and pans and other cooking necessities, you name it.

The lower lounge room is sunken and the couches surround a potbelly stove.  It’s the perfect place to curl up with a book or watch a movie.  The upper lounge also has a smart TV and DVD player, and both have reverse cycle air conditioning.  A balcony, with views over the town, is accessible from the upstairs lounge and has steps down into the garden. 

Outside, the yard is fully and securely fenced, for the safety of Fido and the gardens are a riot of plants both native and exotic, which attract all kinds of birds.  If you’re lucky, you may even spot a Bandicoot, (or Kwenda to use the Noongar language), in the early morning and evening.

On the patio is a large outdoor dining area for when you have a barbeque, enjoying the warm summer evenings, or lunch for when it’s just too nice to eat inside.  

Just a note: Only bedding for humans is provided.  You will have to bring bedding for your dog.

Address: Will be provided when booking is confirmed

11. In-House Holidays

Like Beachhouse Holidays, this holiday company has a vast variety of accommodation options.  However, only five of these are willing to accommodate your pet: Bluefin, Frog Choir, Kanga Views, Kingfisher and Tea Tree Cottage.  The individual property addresses will be provided when booking.

Bluefin is a sweet yet modern cottage a short walk from Gnarabup Beach.  It has its own secluded gardens, with large trees for shade and privacy, as well as a deck, barbeque and outdoor dining suite.

The house itself is very spacious and inviting.  The living area opens onto the deck via large glass sliding doors, making it one giant entertainment area.

A large open plan, fully equipped kitchen is there for your convenience, with every modern appliance you need for cooking: gas stove, oven, microwave, fridge etc., and everything you need for that relaxing hot cocoa in the evening or cuppa joe in the morning to wake you up.

There are four bedrooms, bedrooms one and two have queen-sized beds, while bedroom three has two singles.  Bedroom four is downstairs and has a queen bed and two singles, perfect for the couple with young kids who constantly wake up throughout the night.

Please note that while you’re allowed to bring your dog, the yard is not fenced.

Frog Choir probably acquired its name because of the three dams located on this property.  The property in its entirety is seven acres and contains a very modern and stylish house surrounded by gardens and natural bushland.

There are five bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, a spacious kitchen, meals, and outdoor dining areas.

The main bedroom features a king-sized bed, and Room two features a queen.  Bedrooms three and four sleep two singles, and bedroom five has four single beds, is downstairs, and is open plan with the second lounge area.  One of the three bathrooms is located here too.

The upstairs lounge is open plan with the meals area and the kitchen, which is wonderful for entertaining.  Each lounge area has a TV and DVD player so that fans from each footy team can watch the Western Derby in relative peace.

The kitchen has all the basic necessities for keeping your family and doggo fed while you’re on holiday, and cooking equipment (pots and pans, utensils, etc) are provided.

Opening the large glass sliding doors from the meals area, provides access to the balcony where there is an outdoor dining area and a barbeque.

Please note that even though pets are permitted to stay, Frog Choir is not fully fenced and neither are the dams, so young children must be supervised at all times, and dogs must be adequately restrained.

Kanga View is completely surrounded by eight acres of bush, which can be viewed and appreciated from both an enormous balcony on the second floor, and every window in the entire house.

This secluded dog-friendly accommodation near Margaret River, has three bedrooms., two of which are upstairs and are master bedrooms with king-sized beds and spa baths.  The third bedroom is downstairs, has a queen bed with its own bathroom, laundry and living area.

The main living area is open plan with the kitchen and meals area, and opens out onto the superb balcony.  The balcony, as mentioned before, looks out into the natural bushland where you may spy wildlife and the super marsupial, the kangaroo.  Or a mob of kangaroos to be more precise.  They don’t travel alone.

Another random fact about kangaroos is that the boomers, (the males of the species), flex their muscles to attract females.  Bet you didn’t know that!

Wildlife lovers will adore Kingfisher Cottage.  It is nestled, very picturesquely into a large, meandering garden on a three-hectare property.  The gardens are full of bird-attracting plants, two dams, and a winter creek!  Kingfisher is also very hidden and secluded from neighbours, making it a perfect hideaway from the world.

(Please Note: The dams are not fenced, so please make sure your children are properly supervised.)

There is an enclosed private courtyard or a fenced area near the house in which your cuddly companion can roam, but the rest of the property only has “rural” fencing, which is not secure for your four-legged friend.

A large balcony overlooks the gardens and has outdoor dining facilities, as well as a barbeque and pizza oven.  Or you may prefer to relax on the daybed on the undercover patio.

As for the house, the kitchen is state-of-the-art, with modern appliances, the usual stove, oven, microwave, a bread maker, as well as a coffee machine for your morning “morning jolt”.  There is also a breakfast bar at which to sit and chat while making breakfast (or other daily meals), which looks into the dining area, making it almost open plan.

The lounge room is “L-shaped”, allowing for the choice of whether you’d like to gather in front of the TV or the fireplace.  

The bedrooms are massive and each have a queen bed.  Except for the main bedroom which has a king-sized bed.  Bed linens and towels are provided, as well as extra pillows and blankets for cold winter nights.  Speaking of towels, Kingfisher Cottage also features a sauna!

But,  (in my humble opinion), the crowning glory of Kingfisher Cottage is undoubtedly, the outdoor bathroom.  There are three indoor bathrooms as well, but the outdoor bath is deep and luxurious, the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine and a good book, surrounded by nature.

Tea Tree Cottage is the final pet-friendly accommodation near Margaret River that In House Holidays has on offer.  This house is an ideal romantic getaway for a new couple and their doggy companions.

With two bedrooms, (each featuring a queen bed), a large open plan kitchen, dining and meals area, as well as a verandah on which one (or two) can relax.  Tea Tree is also very close to the beach, which is great when you have to exercise the hound.

To truly know the delights that Tea Tree Cottage has to offer, you really must experience them for yourselves.

Address: Will be provided when booking is confirmed

12. Kilifi Beach House

Kilifi Beach House enjoys a close location to the beach means you have uninterrupted, panoramic views of the sun setting over the ocean, and fall asleep to the sound of the waves.

Before I get into what is on offer for the two-legged holidayers, I’m going to first mention what’s on offer for the four-legged.  

First, there are not one, but two kennels outside, so Doggy Dear can have his pick in which one he wants to sleep in.  Unless he’s a great dane or some such enormous hound, in which case, he won’t fit.

Second, the yard is fenced and lockable.  Third, dogs are permitted inside (but only in the living areas), while the humans are off doing whatever humans do when they’re “off lead”.  Fourth, a park in which they can run free without restraints is literally just across the road, and last the beach is just a mere hop, skip and a jump away.

Everything you need to do to cater for Rex’s every command is at your disposal, and you are expected to use it.  Doggy bags, pooper scoopers, the works.

Now, for the humans… You have the pleasure of being able to stay in a holiday home with everything you could ever want, including being self-sustainable.  

Two queen bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry and an open plan kitchen, living area is on the first floor. This opens into a small verandah and courtyard which features a couple of chairs on which to relax.  Also outside, there is a dining suite and barbeque for outdoor dining as well.  The large kitchen is fully stocked with the cooking appliances necessary

The second story is almost a complete holiday home in itself, for there is a lounge, queen-sized bedroom with an ensuite, a kitchenette complete with a small dining table, and a balcony with majestic views.

I mentioned earlier that Kilifi is self-sustainable.  That’s because the owners desired to reduce the carbon footprint of Kilifi and improve your level of comfort at the same time.  To read more of this story, you can visit their website.  Because the owners are energy conscious, they have also installed a complimentary Tesla Destination Charger for EV cars.
